PhD Student in EECS
Melany Sponseller joined ONE Lab in September 2013 as a Ph.D. candidate in Electrical Engineering at MIT. She received a B.S. and M.S. in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University in June 2013. While an undergraduate, she interned at the Helmholtz Zentrum Berlin Institut für Silizium-Photovoltaik, where she investigated the CVD growth of ZnO nanostructures. Most recently, she investigated the MOCVD growth of III-V thin films for nanostructured solar cell applications in the Harris Group at Stanford.
